You do realize this is the OHSAA..Who didn't see this one coming, for all the talk about lack of attendance, the state was gifted a game between two huge local rivals in Holy Name-Padua who don't have much (if any) playoff history against each other. Put it at Byers, which is about a mile or two from both schools, and it draws 8,000.
Instead, they put it at Brooklyn, which seats 3,200, and to the surprise to no one who has interest in that game, it sold out this morning (think they capped it at 4,000) and now they are urging fans to get there at 5:30 p.m. when gates open to get a seat for a 7 p.m. game, smh.
On top of that, they put the Ed's-McKinley game at Byers (we'll see if it even draws 4,000) and then doubled down on stupid by also making it one of their stream games. HN-Padua, which anybody with a brain knew would sell out Brooklyn, is not one of the streams, so thousands of fans (and that's not hyperbole) are going to be left out in a day where we have a 5-page thread on here about how much attendance sucks. Great job OHSAA!
If they were going to stream Ed's-McKinley anyway and venues are an issue, put that one at Brooklyn or find a small stadium between the two schools, sell it out, and rake on the stream for anybody who can't get a ticket. Then don't stream the HN-Padua game but put it at Byers and rake at the gate.
